Hi there, unfortunately managed to spill a tiny bit of juice on my laptop just in the area of the arrow keys. They are still all working but the "down" arrow is a bit dodgy and it definitely feels like something is sticky in there. do you think i'd need to replace the keyboard or is there a way of cleaning it out? It's a 13" macbook air A1466 (german keyboard version). Thanks!

You should have immediately powered the laptop off to prevent any short circuiting which can cause more severe damage, however its basically working perfectly may only need to remove keyboard and do some cleaning with some pure alcohol.
